Timebox is a private journal of long-lasting daily photo stories automatically created from all of your full-fidelity photos & videos.

You can add more stories and edit any of the stories to include notes, titles, captions, tags, locations, maps and more. You can also add, remove and rearrange the photos & videos.

You can then make collaborative shared journals, fun movies, beautiful hardcover books, posters and other great gifts.

For privacy, security and longevity, Timebox uses your iCloud storage for all syncing and sharing. 

Timebox uses "links" to the photos & videos in your Photos so it never makes any copies nor uploads any until you explicitly choose to share them with other people.

Listen to all the 1 star reviews


I always read the lowest reviews first to get a baseline. Often I find the 1 star reviews to be self-entitled people complaining just for the sake of complaining. But that is not the case with this app.

Unfortunately the 1 star reviews are in the right this time. The app automatically downloads EVERYTHING from your camera roll and there doesn't seem to be a way to turn this feature off, nor a way to select a large portion of "memories" and delete all.

Now, if you are a person who ONLY takes pictures of memorable moments, this isn't a problem for you. But sometimes people take pictures of unimportant things for the moment. Case and point, my eyes aren't that great, so sometimes I take pictures of menu boards I can't see very well and look at them on my phone. I don't need this to be auto-imported into my timeline.

Now, sure, I can just delete that picture when I open the app again to reorganize my memories, but on first time use, it downloaded 7 years of photos. Seven years is a lot of clean-up time.

Seriously guys, give us the choice to download our entire library if we want to. Don't do it automatically.

Developer Response

We're sorry to hear that Timebox didn't work out for you. We'd like to mention that Timebox does not automatically download (or upload) any of your photos. It simply creates photo stories with "links" to the photos and videos that are already in your Photo Library or Camera Roll. If you'd like to turn off that automatic story creation, you can go into the iOS Settings app and in the Timebox section, enable "Hide Auto-Created Stories". Then the only stories in the app will be the ones that you compose yourself.

Relive precious memories


Timebox is the best way to browse through the massive collection of photos on my phone. It is the best way to rediscover old photos. Once I get started I can spend ages going through them.

If you want, you can also make your photos into stories by adding text. Also, super easy to create videos. I haven’t tried to make a book yet, but that sounds like a fun option.

At the end of the day there aren’t many things more important than precious memories, and that’s what Timebox is all about.

Busy moms all need this!!!


I'm a busy mother of 3 children, including a 3 month old and this is the answer to my prayers. I don't have time to organize photos to print out but I love being able to make these easily into a book and goes by date easily picks up from my iPhone. Right now my baby girls Months are all blurring together and I wanted to track her growth and changes and little memories each month to make a baby book but don't have time. This made it super easy!!!!
